I’m a huge Dragon Ball Z fan. It might not be the greatest anime of all time but it is easily my favourite. I watched it religiously growing up. It taught me so many lessons that I still carry with me to this day; the power of hard work, how...

Devon by Night, Surry Hills

Jealousy and I have never really made each other’s acquaintance. In a past life when I was actually dating people, I never minded if my girlfriend would hang out with her male friends or whatever. This was mainly due to my past self’s supreme confidence. In my mind, if you...

Tim Tams are an Australian classic like me taking a girl out to dinner to have her tell me we're great friends.

Scout’s Honour (Redfern)

I finished dinner five minutes ago yet I'm salivating. That's just a murderer's row of quality ingredients all under the one roof. It's like the cast of Love Actually.
Three Williams (Redfern)

Three Williams (Redfern)

My co-workers visited Three Williams in the morning and told me that the coffee was pretty amazing. Due to the fact that I have trust issues built up over years of lies from my parents (I'm still recovering from Santa being just some dude with a fake beard), I had...

Anita Cafe (La Mamma Del Gelato), Chippendale

Everyone that follows me on Instagram knows that I still have a bit of a problem when it comes to ice cream. So you can imagine the chain of events that unfolded upon me learning of a new gelato place that was garnering a heap of praise. I just had to...

Imagine if someone had told you that 'The Dark Knight' was just an okay movie. Pieces of my brain would still be scattered across the cinema floor if someone had managed to lower my expectations for the movie I watch every Valentine's Day (yes, Batman is my valentine. I'm pretty...
Shake Shack, New York

Shake Shack, New York

Shake Shack should be a national heritage site. It should be placed on all 'places to visit' brochures of every city fortunate enough to boast one of (if not the best) burger franchises in the Milky Way. Am I being hyperbolic? Hell, I might be underselling the greatest burger experience...

Spoiler alert: We had two dessert courses because...just because, okay?

There is nothing wrong with having high expectations, that just means you have high standards and that you're not willing to settle for anything less than a superb crab po boy.

Chur Burger, Surry Hills (Katy Perry Edition)

The pork belly burger had my heart racing in my skin tight jeans and it'll definitely be in my teenage dreams tonight.
The Choc Pot, Burwood

The Choc Pot, Burwood

One more time for dramatic effect; this might be the best tea I've ever had. The scent of passionfruit seduced me completely and the staff at the Choc Pot was really confused as to why I was suddenly topless in public view.

Do you remember your first kiss? I do. It was in a game of truth or dare and it was with a girl I didn't really like. There were half a dozen pre-pubescents watching me as I closed my eyes at the last second. Is it possible to ever recreate...
Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine, Chinatown

Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine, Chinatown

Old Town Hong Kong Cuisine might feature some of the most photogenic dishes in Sydney. I just couldn't believe how magnificent a sight the dumplings made encased in their bird's next container.
Sushi Hotaru, Town Hall

Sushi Hotaru, Town Hall

Eel sushi is my favourite. Whoever figured out that cream cheese and eel are best friends deserves whatever they want in life. My two eel topped morsels were quite large and topped with deep fried crisps. I ate these two so fast that the flavours barely registered. When they did,...
Jazz City Milk Bar, Darlinghurst

Jazz City Milk Bar, Darlinghurst

Both were very good by themselves, but combined in one bite with a slight dip into maple syrup? Scrumptous. Something about all the different flavours and textures working in harmony created the most fantastic food party in my mouth.
Taste of Shanghai, Ashfield

Taste of Shanghai, Ashfield

I gasped slightly when this was placed on our table. The fish looked so intimidating and yet it was bathed in sweet and sour sauce. It reminded me of the scene in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban when Neville imagined Professor Snape in his grandmother's clothing.

I’ve spoken about this before but this is my blog and I make the rules; if I get the urge to discuss the Power Rangers, you bet your ass I’m going to discuss the Power Rangers. Some of you might be wondering how I’ve retained all my knowledge on Power Rangers considering someone my age...

Welcome to another installment in everyone’s favourite Sydney food blogger interview series not conducted by VegeTaraian! I compiled a wishlist of people I’d like to interview (you can see it on Facebook) but I also reached out to a few people that weren’t on my list because I love surprising folks. So here’s my first...

My birth certificate may say I was born in a hospital but I honestly believe that the boy came to life on the sweet campus of the University of New South Wales. It’s where I solidified my friendship with my best mates, it’s where I made a tonne of bad jokes that I occasionally recycle...

Beyond the Food with I’m Still Hungry

In a previous life, I wanted to be a journalist. I wanted to enter the realm of written word and carve out a niche as a serious journalist who seemlessly incorporated references to ‘N Sync’s legendary performance at the 2000 Video Music Awards into his pieces. Unforunately, that never panned out and I became a...

During my younger years, I dyed my hair blonde. Not intentionally mind you, this was during the highlights heyday where everyone would dye their hair a darker shade of brown then add blonde highlights throughout it. I swear it made sense at the time. Unfortunately for me, my hairdresser was really enthusiastic about making my...

I was without my phone for most of last Saturday. It’s a long story but it involves chronic texting, needless browsing of Instagram, checking to see if anyone read iFat (still nope) and leaving my phone charger at the office. Combine all those factors and I was left with a nice plastic paperweight that I...

Jazushi, Surry Hills

You know that song ‘Music Sounds Better With You?” I always have someone in mind when that song comes on. Hell, I have someone in mind for every song that’s n my iPod. Every depressing love song about rejection and heartbreak reminds me of one half a dozen girls that took their turn at throwing...

I’ve been called a lot of mean things in my life. Rightfully so but still. The most memorable insult  I ever received was the time a girl in my modern history class called me a “sl*t.” Keep in mind that this was before I had even touched a boob so I was extremely confused. There...

You know what my ideal Friday consists of? Drinking tea, playing cards and catching up with my friends as long as it means I don’t have to leave the house (thank you Skype, telephones and smoke signals). I’m usually completely drained on a Friday night after a hard week of work and being a sex...

“I believe I can fly.” Yes, yes I did just open up my review with a lyric from a R.Kelly song. Say what you will about the man but the dude’s got pipes. However, I do not want to talk about R.Kelly. Though the man is the artist behind the song, that song is synonymous...

My favourite part of my daily routine is the walk from Central station to the office. Every day I see the same faces during my route. The blonde woman who’s always late, the Asian couple in constant relationship flux (they walk on opposite sides of the path if they’ve fought the night before and walk...
